Today, I was at a swim meet, swimming as hard as I'd ever swum before. During the last lap I saw no one in the lanes next to me. Thinking I was first, I became extremely excited. When I came to the wall, I realized the reason no one else was around: They already finished the race. I was last. FML

The hardest he has ever swam in his life but got last place, and you think he will do better next time? I'm sorry but that sounds pretty unlikely. I think OP should pick a new sport, like chess or checkers maybe.


EDIT: Actually, I just checked a couple of legitimate English language sites, and apparently both are considered correct. They're both the past participle for "swim".

So we're all correct.

The simple past of "swim" is "swam" and the past participle is "swum."

"Swam" is correct in this context.

#40, you are right. As the sentence appears now, "swam" is correct. If "had" had been there, then "swum" would be right. I wish the zods would make a note when a story is edited for spelling or grammar.
